8 Months

Bug you are now 8 months old! Before I know it I am going to have to start planning your 1 year Birthday! (Who are we kidding I've already started and it is going to be fabulous)!

You have changed sooo much and I feel like my baby days are numbered until you will be a crazy wild toddler. I don't want to forget the highlights as we go so here you are at 8 months.

You are creeping along on your belly and it is officially your first method of getting around on your own! I think you would like to skip this step and go straight to walking but we all know what the books say about those babies... so you my friend are going to crawl first.
You look like you are a soldier wounded in battle on his last leg of life when you crawl but hey we still think your baby coordination far out weighs all the others :)

You love to stand and hold onto furniture- in most scenarios you are holding on for dear life

It's safe to say you have entered the land of bumps and falls and unfortunately that head of yours is hard to gage and it ends up taking quite a bonking throughout the day

Now that you scoot around we have to be careful what we leave on the ground by you. For example dad left a pile of shoes out and in no time flat you had scooted over to them and were vigorously sucking the life out of the BOTTOM of one. I may have shrieked out loud

You now have baby conversation going and have taken to saying 'dadda' and on the rarest of occasions 'mamma'

I will be going on a girls trip to NYC next month and it will be my first time spending days away from you! I am one of those mothers that will need to read the section in those baby books on 'How to Handle My Worries About Leaving My Baby for the First time'

You started sleeping through the night at 5 months and it has made a WORLD of difference! 

You like to be read to before bed. It is one of the only times you will sit still on my lap, no wiggles, just a cuddly boy and it's what I live for. Especially on some of the longer days.

Dad and I spend most of our time talking about how handsome you are. Whether you are awake, asleep, or right next to us- you pretty much consume us!

Good luck with the mommy worries of leaving your baby for the first time! I did it when Emmett was 15 months old when we went to Korea and I literally didn't sleep for WEEKS leading up to it. But, it was fine and all turns out ok in the end. (But it is a HUGE relief to have them back in your arms when you're home!)
